A mother and her two daughters were arrested yesterday morning after allegedly attacking a teacher at John Muir Middle School.Kiki Fowler, 33, and one of her daughters were arrested on suspicion of felony battery, and her other daughter was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to City News Service. The daughters' names have not been released since they are minors, but one of them was a student at the school. Fowler was being held on $20,000 bail.

The attack happened in a hallway around 9 am at the South Los Angeles campus. The three went to school and checked in at the office. They were told to leave, but instead they went to a special education teacher's classroom, according to CBS Los Angeles. The trio encountered the teacher in the hallway where the alleged attack occurred.

It's not clear what motivated the fight or how badly injured the teacher was. A spokeswoman for LAUSD told City News Service the teacher did not come to work today, but her name was not disclosed.

CBS Los Angeles got an anonymous tip about the attack that said:

“There was a brutal teacher attack at John Muir Middle School today. A parent with two of her children attacked a teacher just outside her classroom . . . . I do think the public awareness of this event is needed. This event has been brewing for some time and the need to have some kind safety procedures in place at our local schools is essential.”
